You Know You're Getting Old When....

You know you're getting old're watching a You Tube clip on a speech in class and up pops an image of Max Headroom. Then of course, all the young college kids ask simultaneously who is that? The best part of this story is the only person who knows the answer, other than yourself, is.... (you guessed it) the PROFESSOR! Yay! Several of them to proceed make fun of the "technology" calling it lame. Let's be honest, it was very advanced and cool for 1987! Come on people this is the same decade where using a cell phone inside a duffel bag was also advanced. *SIGH* I still say it was great for the time.

The 80's were an awesome or totally tubular decade. We had parents beating each other up for Cabbage Patch dolls. Which other decade can you have transforming robots, He-Man, and GI Joe being marketed to boys at the same time as the "My Buddy" dolls for boys. I guess when they figured out it wasn't the next big hit for boys, they made a doll for girls called "Kid Sister". No I did not own one. I did have a Cabbage Patch doll named Allison. I still have a picture of that doll. Good times, good times. (I will dig that picture out and post it in the next couple of days. I miss that doll.)


  1. And then you have the other side: yeah, he looks familiar, but I never paid much attention to him. He was something the kids liked.


  2. Haha! Oh yea! I remember him too! You are not old! Good for you going back to school and finishing your degree!
    I love your writing! You have a great sense of humor!
    Hey, I live in Laffy! How about them Ragin Cajuns!
    Have a great day!
